Obituary: Died, on the morning of the 24th, of heart failure, Mr. Silas Gibson, aged 89 years and 7 months. He was born in Hector, Thompkins County, New York in 1804.

He helped wield the axe and saw, to fell the trees and clear the farms for cultivation, and underwent all the hardships of pioneer life. He was highly respected and leaves a large circle of relatives and friends to mourn his departure.
